Born in New Zealand, Stacey Rose moved to Middle East, travelled the world, and lived in Dubai, Australia, and Auckland (and a cruise ship for a few months) all by the age of 18. These early adventures fostered her love of fashion,travel, and art but it wasn’t until her late 20’s that she picked up the paint brushes and taught herself how to draw (Stacey was so bad at art in highschool, they wouldn’t let her study it), gaining traction in her 30’s.
She has since had the privilege of illustrating for and collaborating with clients including Karen Murrell Lipsticks, The Hilton, The Luxury Network, Dark Hamptons, Miller Road Fragrances and more.
Stacey believes that art is fun and for everyone, and is an advocate for creative careers.
When she isn’t illustrating, you can find Stacey trackside at a Fashion-On-The-Field, or spending time with her family and two dogs.
Stacey Rose Illustrations is a website, brand, and creative illustration studio dedicated to celebrating the world of fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle through a fashion-illustrated lense.
Although she has always loved art, Stacey didn’t begin her creative career until 31 when she took a Kerrie Hess course on fashion illustration and watercolor. She shared a few sketches online and started to gain work. It wasn’t until she turned 33 that she took the leap and transitioned into art full time.
As well as her own range of homewares, prints, and stationery, Stacey Rose Illustrations has collaborated with a number of brands and clients for custom illustrations, animations, branding, packaging, and art licensing.
